According to Aj MacLeod, the original keyboard.xml has a bug, which might have something to do with the troubles reported so far. Thus I recommend users udate keyboard.xml.

Thanks to Aj, I can upload the revised keyboard.xml file.
To update the file, replace/Applications/FlightGear.app/Contents/Resources/data/keyboard.xml with the attached file.

    I replaced the keyboard.xml file as recommended. I'm running a Mac G5 with OSX 10.4 Tiger. There was no change. Still no rudder action. I checked the update keyboard.xml file and compared it with the original that came with the FlightGear program. I couldn't see any difference for the rudder pedals. They both are set for LEFT RUDDER "Insert" and RIGHT RUDDER "Enter." I don't have an Insert key on a Mac G5 keyboard.
    Has anyone updated the keyboard.xml file for Mac G5?

    You don't have to update the xml file.
    You can actuate the rudder using "0 (zero)" key instead of insert key.

    you can find the data folder by control-clicking "FlightGear" icon in the Applications folder, and then, choose "Show Package Contents" to explore the directory under the FlightGear folder.

    write control mode in cvs lines. later, use cero and enter for pedals, 1 and 7 pitch, page up to throttle (func + up arrow in pb g4) the parentesis key for flaps, or ? key for help

    Still doesn't seem to do rudder right with the Enter/Return but it is easily fixed. I would like the left rudder 0 and the right rudder -, which is to the right of 0 on my keyboard. The ascii code is '45'. In the keyboard.xml file just change the entry for the Enter key with num code 13 to 45 and change the name to -.

    oh yeah and if throttle doesnt work you need to press s to start the plane cuz its off usually. press s and hold then go also hold down 9 and after it starts to move let go of s. to turn brakes off do shift b. yeah. and p.s. my sound is no longer working. any ideas? oh p.s. i have the early 2009 white macbook 13inch for keyboard.

    How do I control the throttle on an iMac without a numeric keypad? 3/9 does not work. There is no page up or page down key. I've hit everything, but nothing seems to increase the throttle.
